Leaving Orkney and sailing next to the Old Man of Hoy.

It was time to say bye to Orkney and to island life, for now, it was a hard goodbye but the views from sailing away from Stromness made it easier. I always wondered how it must feel to live on that little island in the bay of Stromness.

The Pelican of London was also ready to sail on.

One last view back and then forwards to Hoy, without a cloud on that day!

There is also a view of the coastal walk from the day before.

The first glimpse of the Old Man of Hoy, as I wasn´t able to hike there, I was happy to see it at least from the ferry!

Around that corner to the left would be Rackwick beach.

A few hours later we arrived back on Mainland Scotland and I drove to Stoer to start my week in Assynt, another place with amazing views.
